When Steve and Shannon Hunt bought a bigger house to fit their growing family about a decade ago, they didn’t leave town. Although they moved just five blocks, their legal residence changed from Grand Forks County to Traill County. Reynolds, a community of 300, sits right on the county line. It’s split by County Road 25. People living in the north half of town reside in Grand Forks County. Those on the south side of the road, known as Fourth Street but serves as the town’s Main Street, live in Traill County. The move paved the way for Steve Hunt, the Traill County chief deputy sheriff, to succeed the retiring Mike Crocker. Hunt is running unopposed for a four-year term as sheriff in today’s Tuesday’s election.
